Cincinnati, OH -- The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey recently announced that it has completed installing energy-efficient LED lighting on the iconic necklace of the George Washington Bridge. LSI Industries, under contract to the New York Power Authority (NYPA) and in coordination with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey developed and produced this innovative lighting system.
The new LED necklace lighting is now lit by 156 Crossover® LED NL fixtures and the benefits are many when compared to the previous mercury vapor fixtures -
Dramatically more efficient light distribution
Reduced energy usage 60,000-hour life expectancy (approximately 15 years as compared to one-year life expectancy for the previous lighting)
220,000-pound estimated reduction of carbon dioxide per year
LSI is currently engaged with NYPA on several other LED bridge retrofits in the New York area.
